If your needs change and the supports in your NDIS plan no longer address all your needs, you can request a plan review at any time by completing a change of circumstances form.
It’s helpful to have support to complete this form to ensure all the details that describe your change of circumstances are included. Your support coordinator is an example of someone who can assist with this.
Examples of changes that may prompt a plan review include:
- Changes to your disability needs
- Significant changes in your care or support provided by family or friends
- Changes to your living arrangements such as where you live, or who is living with you
You can change the section in your plan called ‘About Me’, as well as your NDIS goals, at any time. You don’t need to request a plan review to make these changes. The NDIA will issue you a new plan with this update.
Requesting to change your NDIS plan may not always mean that it will be changed. However, if your plan doesn’t suit your needs, it is important to let the NDIA know.
If you’ve submitted a request to change any aspect of your current plan, you can still use your plan until you are notified of any changes. You or your support coordinator/support team may need to follow up with the NDIA to check on whether the changes have been made.
